10:02 - Risto Yeah, there are still albums being released that are easily as good as the top 200 of this site
09:31 - Lethrokai ...albums released from that point are more likely to have lower ratings. (+vote abusing has become more noticeable...) It's a pattern you'll find on most music rating sites.
09:27 - Lethrokai Eh, the rise in popularity of the internet explains that best. New albums are always judged more harshly upon their initial release, and as such with more people to judge those new albums due to the rise in internet popularity...
08:45 - Moose Interesting... Axioma Ethica Odini by Enslaved (2010) is the most recent album in the top 200. Meanwhile, 67 albums from the 00's feature in the list.
07:25 - Soulhole new soilwork, nile, and ahab today. im in valhala!
05:31 - no one kiwi, your names a bit false advertising isn't it?
04:53 - LeKiwi I believe Digipak needs to capitalised as it is a registered trademark, where as digipack simply refers to that style of packaging. Not entirely sure...digipack might just be a spelling mistake, however logical :P
Among those who still hold faith in melodeath, Be'lakor's upcoming opus is certainly on their wishlist. The Australian band has been throwing hints our way on their Facebook page. This time around, the band seems inclined to take into account their fans' (constructive) opinions. Whether or not they actually influence the album will only be made apparent after our first glimpse of the material but Be'lakor's album number four is on its way.
A few updates from the band include the following:
"...We're also thinking about ideas for the next album's theme. There's a good chance it will be a concept album. Stay tuned, more updates to come!"
"...The first new song for the next album is also nearly complete. We're able to explore more ideas this time around..."
"...favourite Be'lakor riff, and why? ... Keen to hear your thoughts as we continue to work on album number four!"
"...favourite metal producer? Anyone you'd like to see us work with?"
Shaun and John hard at work on new material. Also present: a pot belly heater for warmth, and an Axe-Fx II for effects and pre-amping
The band's latest offering Of Breath And Bone won the best Melodeath / Extreme Power / Gothenburg Metal album on Metal Storm Awards 2012.
